What is Orchid Synthetic Opal?

Orchid Opal is a synthetic lab-made material that consists of Silica and Polymer rather than hydrated silica (natural opal). The polymer stabilizes our opal which in turn makes it easier for jewelry making. You will experience less cracking and crazing that can be detrimental when using natural opal in jewelry. By using a polymer it also creates a slightly softer product making it superior for turning and cabbing. Our crushed opal does not fall victim to color fading and is resistant to chemicals such as acetone and alcohol. 

Our Synthetic Opal takes around one year to grow in a controlled environment. This a complex process of layering to create the unique color patterns. This complex process is used to then create a rough cut of synthetic opal that is then made into beads. The beads are drilled and perfected into the many different sizes we offer. Due to the layering of vibrant bursts of color this makes each bead unique with it's own blend of colors and patterns.
